    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at BAE Systems USA in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was contacted a few weeks later by a HR person who asked some background questions and then set me up for a phone interview. Phone interview was pretty short, asked a couple behavioral questions, and then said they'd get back to me. HR rep called a couple weeks later to give me an offer, but I had already accepted somewhere else. The whole process was pretty opaque the whole time.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BAE Systems USA in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I knew two of the four interviewers. We discussed where our old offices were in relation to each other at Micron. One interviewer asked if I was fast (their current Tech Writer was slow -- I gather). I told him I was fast enough at Lam, LensVector, Nextest, Micron, LSI Logic and Synopsis. He just laughed.
